Marriage & Family

All Ages

Bayside's Marriage & Family Ministry exists to strengthen marriages, and encourage and equip parents with the tools to become intentional Christ-centered families. Our ministry offers parenting classes for expectant parents, MOPS, studies for parents through the teen years, and community groups/family resources.

Premarital / Family Counseling

Bayside Marriage Coaching connects seasoned married couples (coaches) that have weathered the storms of marriage with younger couples (recipient couples) that are seeking encouragement in their marriage.
Through thought-provoking questions and conversations (not counseling), the marriage coach couple lovingly guides the recipient couple toward their goals in marriage and helps equip them with tools for building a thriving relationship.

Have you adopted a child, recently or years ago? Are you thinking about it? Could you use a little more info or encouragement throughout the process? The Bayside Adoption Network is here for anyone who has adopted, is in the process of adopting or is interested in adopting in the future. Connect with others going through similar life events and support and encourage each another!

We are couples who have older teens, college students, or grown adult children, and also a few grandchildren! We are also couples who have no children but want to grow in our marriage. Most of all, we are a marriage community that loves spending time together and growing in our relationship with our spouse and with Jesus. Come experience a large and small group setting at the same time. Pastor Mark Godshall and team will teach in the larger group while you have a chance to connect with others at your table in small group discussions. You can expect relevant topics, real life discussion, and a few laughs with others in a similar place in life. We also have many different social activities outside of our marriage community.

Current Teaching & Discussion Series – “Sacred Marriage”
This great book and video series by Gary Thomas doesn’t just tell you how to build a better marriage. It shows how your marriage can help you deepen your relationship with God. From the practice of forgiveness, to the ecstasy of lovemaking, to the history you and your spouse create together, everything about your marriage is filled with the potential for discovering and revealing Christ’s character. With provocative discussion questions for couples and table groups, this series will change you and your marriage. Whether your marriage is delightful or difficult, your marriage can become a doorway to a closer walk with God.
